Following their announcement last week
, Hotel-e-com, hotel service provider, have signed their first contract at International Confex, to install the new RoomMate in room system at Custom House Hotel, Excel.
RoomMate offers a revolution in communication for the business traveller. Providing instant communication, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Alongside fax, colour printing with laptop connectivity and blue tooth enabled PDA, photocopying and scanning facilities, RoomMate now also has a facility for producing instant colour photographs from a digital camera.
Manufactured by Hewlett Packard, the new RoomMate has a facility for taking the memory-card out of a digital camera, so that photographs can been printed instantly.
George Burrows, Sales and Marketing Director for Hotel-e-com, comments ?gThis facility has been launched here at Confex for the first time and the Custom House Hotel at Excel will be the first installation with the new version. The new wing of the hotel is due to open in August and we will be installing the new system. The first 21 rooms are scheduled in the next 2 - 3 weeks and they will be the gradual build up to the main installation that is scheduled for June. The official opening is currently planned for August.?h
He added ?gIt?fs the only selling proposition for a hotel at the moment where they have the ability to actually generate additional revenue in the room. The guests have the ability to work as if they are in their own office at home, with all the facilities totally confidential and private. This is the key element?h.
